De Occulta Philosophia has just published an interview with yours truly titled, "Reviewing the Modern Grimoire: Balkan's Arcane Bindings". The interviewer asks some really good questions, allowing me the opportunity to voice my opinions on a various aspects of contemporary occult publishing. The interview can be read at this link:
Reviewing the Modern Grimoire: Balkan's Arcane Bindings.
Manfred the Mandrake
After a prolonged dormancy, and just in time for Halloween, Manfred the mandrake has awakened from his slumber with a burst of new growth. Growing mandrakes can be extremely difficult, but for those willing to give it a try, I highly recommend contacting Harold Roth at Alchemy Works for purchasing seeds.

C. J. S. Thompson's book, The Mystic Mandrake (1975) is well worth the read too.
Lastly, I will be spending the first part of November on a spiritual sojourn that will take me high up into the Rocky Mountains. Internet connection may be spotty at best. This may delay my next book review a little, though I hope to get it posted here soon.
Next book review: The Book of Azazel: The Grimoire of the Damned by E. A. Koetting (Special Reserve edition), published by Nephilim Press.
